Bike camps at Camp Chief Hector YMCA

Camp Chief Hector YMCA now offers a 13-day mountain biking camp for girls and boys. This overnight camp is for campers who are 10 years old.

Campers and counsellors will spend two days of their camp experience exploring our trails and surrounding natural areas. The group is introduced to the basics of mountain biking technique and simple bike maintenance and learns to manage the risks associated with travel on trails, group management and wildlife concerns. Over the course of their stay at camp, the group will set out on 4 half day rides, introducing and reviewing skills learned on each trip. This program is intended for novice riders.
These groups also go on a 3-day backpacking trip in Bow Valley Provincial Park.
Campers may participate in on-site activities such as the high ropes course and climbing tower, archery, waterfront canoeing, animal game, climbing, crafts, campfires and games.

Bicycles and helmets provided by Camp Chief Hector YMCA.
